Happy Madison Productions’ Sandler and Allen Covert will serve as producers, and Barry Bernardi and Tim Herlihy are the executive producers.

The film will premiere globally on Netflix in 2018. The streaming network announced in March that it would be financing and producing four more films with Sandler in the wake of its four-movie deal with Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions.

Netflix has said that Sandler’s first two comedies, “The Ridiculous 6” and “The Do-Over,” were the most-watched original films to launch on the service. Sandler’s “Sandy Wexler” debuted in April on Netflix.

Buscemi starred in HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” from 2010 to 2014. He appeared in “The Ridiculous 6” and starred opposite Richard Gere in “Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer,” the 2016 American-Israeli political drama written and directed by Joseph Cedar.
